I Didn’t Know

I didn’t know the meaning of forever,
Until you took me deep into your heart.
I could accept us being here together,
But thought for sure one day our ways would part.
Forever was a place I couldn’t go,
For in my mind I simply didn’t know.

I didn’t know the meaning of a love song,
Until you sang to me without the words.
I could accept the melody and music,
But disbelieved the voice my spirit heard.
A love song was a place I couldn’t go,
For in my mind I simply didn’t know.

I didn’t know the meaning of connection,
Until I drifted into it one day.
It took me from a world of imperfection
To all I asked, to seek, to find, to pray.
Connection was a place I couldn’t go,
Until my mind was calm enough to know.


Happy National/Global Poetry Writing Month (NaGloPoWriMo)! I won’t be posting every day, but any contribution is a good one.
